presidential race, michelle. 85% has gone to support romney or to oppose president obama. 85% of the money is going against the president, yet he's edging ahead. >> it has been remarkable how much money has been spent and how much influence the outside groups have had. so it's going to be interesting to see the morning after this whether this is seen as like the cycle of the super pac triumph and a new way that these things are going to run or if obama pulls it out, whether this is going to be seen as a lot of wasted money on the part of folks like sheldon adelson. >> what is the danger of this, richard, in terms of this all of this money? or will it be rethought if, in fact, the president is deterred? >> well, a lot of promises were made to those super wealthy people that it would be affected. they are going to have to go back after all, most of them are super wealthy people and ask were those promises ever delivered? never mind about who wins. every dollar that they have spent has gone less far than the campaign. they don't get the same ad rates. so a dollar of the koch money is not the
to be putting obama care on the table. there's no question in my mind. >> how does that make sense, michelle? >> well, it makes sense because eric cantor's team lost the election and their hopes of repealing obama care is pretty much shot. so their last chance at undermining a bill that they all hate and campaigned on repealing is to try and make it look like the only thing reasonable for the defendant to do is to throw it in the mix. of course, that's not true. they are just grasping at last straws here. >> can i make a moment on that? >> yes. go ahead. >> if i were president obama and i were sitting in that room and negotiating with these members and someone brought up -- if eric cantor brought up putting affordable care act on the table, i would be well within my rights to stand up and walk out of that room. that is absolutely ridiculous. i totally agree everything should be on the table when it comes to fiscal policy but this election was an entorsment of the affordable care act. these guys, i think, are really nuts to try to raise that as an issue in this context. >> well, the other par
is about more than just obama. it's about your mama. joining me now is journalist and former judge, katherine cryer and michelle cottle. thank you all for being here. >> thank you, reverend. >> michelle, let me go to you first. this is no normal election. isn't this a huge decision point for this country? >> it is. we're always talking about this is the most important election in our history but there's at least one item on the table and that's the health care plan and the fate of it is going to depend heavily on who ends up in the white house and we've talked about elections are big ideas and you have big choices to make and i think it's notable that mitt romney has spent a great deal of time trying to cover up what his big ideas are, trying to align the differences and step away from the severe conservatism he was peddling earlier towards a more moderate version where he wouldn't dream of dealing with abortion legislation or giving tax breaks to the wealthy, that sort of thing. >> yeah. but, dana, they have supported massive cuts, to her point, cuts to government despite taking a
of the armed services. governor ed rendell and michelle cottle, thanks for your time. >>> coming up, their plan to destroy president obama didn't work. so they are pointing fingers. you won't believe who they are blaming. it's not a democrat. this is "politicsnation," the place for politics, msnbc. and create a next-gen s.u.v. with best-in-class fuel economy of 26 miles per gallon, highway, and best-in-class passenger roominess? yeah, that would be cool. introducing the all-new nissan pathfinder. it's our most innovative pathfinder ever. nissan. innovation that excites. ♪ it's eb. want to give your family the very best in taste, freshness, and nutrition? it's eb. want to give them more vitamins, omega 3s, and less saturated fat? it's eb. eggland's best eggs. eb's. the only eggs that make better taste and better nutrition... easy. eggland's best eggs. better taste. better nutrition. better eggs. it's eb. >>> they there are five stages of grief but for right wingers, there is only one, denial. here is dick morris on sunday. >> we're going to win by a landslide. it will be the biggest surprise i
be why president obama is the president and won the election. joining me now is e.j. dionne, columnist for the post and an msnbc contributor and michelle carter washington, correspondent for news week and "the daily beast." first of all, thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> good to be with you. >> let me start with you. has the president won this argument? i mean, i think that service politically brilliant. i happen to agree with it, but in terms of idea logically and politically, but to put the republicans in a position where they're going to have to be responsible for raising the taxes on their constituents or say we're going to make your taxes go up if we don't save the rich, i think he put them between a rock and a hard place. >> you know, it's so ironic because when we are in this position because the republicans a long time ago under president bush were trying to stuff more tax cuts into a very limited number so they said aha, if we say they expire, then we can actually pass for tax cuts. now that expiration date means the president has the upper hand. it's clear wit
